Pure Squirrel Hair
Pure Squirrel Hair handles and points as well as Kolinsky and Red Sable but has very little ‘snap’ because the hair isn’t very resilient. Nevertheless an absorbent hair ideal for watercolour, inks and dyes, glass silk and porcelain painting. The Russian Squirrel Hair I use is superior in quality to Canadian and fashions a more professional brush. ‘Kazan’ being brown squirrel hair and ‘Sacamena’ the blue!
